    Which law does your daughter specialise in Jim?

    The law has become increasingly specialised so there are now lawyers specialising in Probate, Conveyancing, Commercial, Marine, Contract, Litigation, PI and so forth.

    There are so many factors involved in even simple questions that it can be difficult to give a straightforward answer. Added to which lawyers along with other professionals now have to be very careful when giving informal advice because there have been test several cases where professionals have been sued for giving bad advice even though they were not paid to give it!

    I guess there would have been a lawyer or two involved in those disputes too!

      Is she anyone's daughter-in law?

              There are people making vast amounts of money out of this fiasco and that can only come from one source...

                Most of our stocks and shares are invested outside of the UK and they are doing well. Last year some of them plummeted and we lost out, but since then they came back up. But if Jeremy Corbyn gets in, any money we have in the UK. we will move out.

                One of the products we like to eat in Nairobi, is Marmite. Marmite is exported to Kenya at 200% more than what it costs to buy in a UK supermarket. I wonder if the cost of Marmite will go up when the UK leaves the EU?

                We have started stocking up on Marmite to take back in our luggage.

                  As with any investment, you should spread the risk!

                          Pulling the plug out doesn't resolve anything.

                          I wonder how long the night time curfews will last?

                          I was expecting to hear Hodges shout 'get that light out' last night.

                            You must eat a lot. Do you spread it on so thick that it strips the skin off your hard palate?

                                You mean your wife doesn't tell you what to do?

                                Where did you find her?
